to creating pro-growth tax law that will enable american companies to compete effectively against companies that are domicile in other countries around the world we need a level playing field. the united states has the highest corporate tax rate in the world. also the united states is one of the few countries in the world with a system that is called a global tax system rather than a territorial tax system. the 113th congress we are going to continue to advocate for comprehensive tax reform that broadens the base that reduces corporate tax rates and moves through a competitive territorial system. proctor and gamble pays income taxes and over 100 countries around the world. a business tax reform should provide a level playing field so that each business has the confidence of knowing it pays roughly the same amount of income tax as its competitors in markets with at home and abroad. in terms of deficit reduction, the obvious problem that must be addressed is the problem that currently the united states has been spending at a rate that far exceeds the rate of revenue that we are receiving. the
to jump in. >> i have problems having spent 30 years in law enforcement. i do have a problem with that and i think i was discussed in mexico in the last session of congress and it didn't really get anywhere. i think they know what the consequences are but the drug abuse. it seemed to me, decriminalizing drugs, [inaudible] that's my personal opinion. >> the information i've seen, although you hear these arguments about decriminalizing, on the other hand these to more and more different drugs and i think -- is not the right direction we would like to take. >> i think mexico does not have the infrastructure to deal with the jocks. in order for that to happen, you would have medical attention and infrastructure that needs to deal with the people addicted to drugs and the effects that create. i think, from my cave, my very own dave to deal not a clear socially was such a big step. there are some who believe and it may believe that what create -- it would stop the violence. i don't think you will do it. not from my death. the country has the backdrop to do with addictions. >> next
are, how do we go about as writers, political figures, judges, law professors, how do we translate the principles of the 18th century in the world of the 21st century? they talk about free speech. they attacked the separation of powers, we have the administrative state. we talk about this is an ongoing process, but given how different the world is, how do we translate the wonderful historically impressive event and say the 18th century to the different world of the 21st century? >> guest: it's not easy. one of the things i object to with so much of the propaganda that i was responding to was that it made you sound very easy. clearly we need to do this. we need to go back to what the founders intended, which is problematic on a whole lot of different levels. i think we'll make a lot of mistakes if we try to go back to the constitution and the demise of the people who wrote it because i don't believe they set down intending to create a checklist of things we need to do. i think they created a political process that is still a very dynamic process and when i've lectured about the book
, whether it's my ancestors from ireland and germany, many generations ago or my in-laws and brother's side of the family a generation ago from mexico. in every case, the people who by and large have come to america have come with a dream of living a better life than their children. getting an education, working hard. in many cases starting up their businesses and living the american dream and we ought to find a way to make that more possible. now, that also means we live in a society of rules and so we need to abide by the laws that i think there are practical ways to abide by those lawses. and any ethnic where they come from, should live the american dreams and what it stands for. >> greta: what do you do about those illegally here in this country? have you thought about that? that's one of the thornier issues. >> well, clearly there's got to be a well thought-out process in doing this, a balance between respect for the law and all the talk about securing the border, which is important, is that we've got a mess when it comes to the federal agency that controls immigration. we've got peopl
to be some way for the 11 million people who are here without their papers to somehow get right with the law. >> what's next for the debate in congress? as the debt ceiling hovers over head? >>> plus governor jerry brown up close and personal. in an exclusive interview with pbs "newshour's" spencer michels. >> it drives me crazy when people say, you haven't done anything. should we cut the colleges more and pump it into the prisons? >> our spotlight on politics coming up next. >>> good evening. welcome to "this week in northern california." with the presidential inauguration coming up on monday, and major developments this week on gun control and immigration reform, we focus tonight on politics from california to washington, d.c. we'll hear from governor jerry brown later in the program. and to help analyze it all, we're joined in studio by carla marinucci, "san francisco chronic chronicle" senior political reporter." debra saunders, "san francisco chronicle" conservative columnist. scott shafer, host of the "california report" joining us from washington, d.c. scott, let's start with you. yo
for the tough laws. what is his agenda, both in the house and in the senate? >> right. he needs to get the votes to pass in the congress. obviously. so he is trying to change the equation, trying to build up pressure on congress men and women, and the one thing they respond to this pressure from their voters. they are actually quite accessible for their voters, so barack obama has called upon voters to call their congress people and say that it is important to ban assault weapons, for example. he has done that before -- for example, for the fiscal cliff just a couple of weeks ago. it has worked before. the other way he wants to build up pressure is by organizing this push for new laws, like a campaign with the money, the ads, and the whole machinery he used for his reelection to put more pressure, more power in this push. that is usually not the way to do it, but obviously, the traditional method of just negotiating is not working here. >> this new strategy -- will it have an impact on america's thinking about guns? just how divided the nation on this right now? >> probably the campaign itself,
capacity magazines. an assault weapons ban that, of course, lapsed in 2004, and he'd like stricter laws on gun trafficking. but senator schumer, just as i challenged wayne la pierre of the nra on this program very hard when this initially came up, i challenge you as well with the question of is this really going to make a difference? and rich lowry wrote something that caught my attention in "the national review." no one can write a law against mothers owning guns that one day might be turned against them by deranged sons who then commit horrific acts of murder-suicide. shooting rampages are hard to prevent because they are so often committed by disturbed young men with no criminal records who don't care if they are caught and usually want to die. these are adult facts that don't intrude on the childish world of white house policy making. he notes adam lanza in newtown, his own mother, of course, passed a background check. >> right. here's the bottom line. these laws are not always perfect. and you'll always find certain exceptions. but they make a huge difference. every major person wh
it illegal in the state to enforce any new federal gun laws. how many times have we had this debate? this time after the murders of the children in newtown, conn., the president tells us this is different. the president has signed 23 executive orders aimed at reducing gun violence and is urging congress to reinstate a ban on so-called assault weapons, limit the size on magazines, and mandate here are some background checks for all gun sales. he is also asking the public to put heat on members of congress. >> remembers of congress if they support universal background checks to keep guns out of the wrong hands. the response from the nra was immediate. >> is the president's kids more important than yours? why is he's skeptical about putting our security in his school's, when his daughters have arm together school? mr. obama demands of will to pay their fair share of taxes but he is just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to his fair share of security. protection for his kids and gun- free zones for hours. -- for ours. >> at the white house, and jay carney called the ad cover the.
council will again discuss paying veteran law enforcement officer bill bratton a quarter million dollars to advise on reducing violence. he's known for cutting crime but his critics complain about the tactics behind the successes. >>> the controversial tactic of using stun guns by sfpd will also be up for discussion tonight. the chief has been pushing for a pilot program allowing 100 officers to carry them and they would undergo special training on how to use the devices on the mentally ill. that meeting tonight set for 6:00 at the hamilton recreation center on gary. this is the first of three meetings the get input -- to get input from the public. >>> work is getting underway to repair the damage to a bay bridge tower fender damaged by a tanker. cbs 5 reporter elissa harrington joins us now with more on what it's expected to cost to finish the damage. >> reporter: it won't be done until sometime in the spring. just some of the damage that needs to be repaired. 40 feet of the bay bridge's fender system. it was crushed when an oil tanker sidesw

[ laughter ] [cheers and applause] as the porn industry's lead attorney palm cambria, jr., explains let's assume we're filming an adult movie and it's taking place in the swash buckler times all of a sudden captain jack slips on a condom. and obviously that would destroy the movie because it would be fake. that wouldn't have happened them. yes, the whole reason you watch porn is the historical ak race six i'm easy thrown by and ak nix which are all through yankee doodle dandy. the irquois are not with the british. the bead work on her g-string is part of the branch that never gave up loyalty to the british crown. it throws you out of the scene. now you are masturbating to an absurd costume drama like an idiot. makes no sense. bravo paul cambria, jr., for stand

and congress must do to strengthen gun laws and stem the tied that killed 26 people in newtown last month and hundreds more. the first national gun legislation since 1994. mr. obama would like to see a number of changes to our gun laws and supported measures such as tightening gun checks, insuring database. and research in gun violence causes and prevention and hire school resource officers, and insuring medicaid recipients get quality mental healthcare. senate majority harry reid said i'm committed to ensureing that address gun violence. all options should be on the table before we compromise and fold. here is the president talking about this matter earlier today. >> obama: as soon as i'm finished speaking here, i will sit at that desk and sign a directive giving schools hubble health community tools they need to help reduce gun violence. as important as these steps are they are in no way a substitute for action from members of congress. to make a reel and lasting real and lasting difference congress, too must act, and i'm calling on congress to pass very specific proposals right away. f

the undocumented in our nation. >> do you believe that the 1965 immigration reform law that ended northern european preference expanded the diversity that we're experiencing in america? >> i think it played some role. so do birth rates and the like. i will say that even, again, i do think we have to be more realistic on the quotas. we have people with families for -- in some cases, decades and decades and beyond. it would seem to me to take that into account and reunifighting families. >> what is the likely timeline for congress to start debating an actual immigration bill? what is plan b if the republicans don't go for a full package? >> i'm hoping on plan a. i will say this, we don't expect that this will just be up to the congress. we've seen in the past, particularly, with this do-nothing congress of last session that they respond to public pressure. i think you will see mayors across the country engage on this issue. i'm giving a speesh at the u.s. conference of mayors. we are a baurp organization and we have passed every year comprehensive immigration reform. sometimes the mayors -- the best

, law was less than that. that was a classic compromise that he did not get. another compromise was his promise to repeal the bush tax cuts for higher income. his goal was couples making more than 200th $50,000 or couples making $200,000 and the fiscal cliff deal did not achieve that. we rented that a compromise. let's go to fort lauderdale,. caller: with respect to not keeping a promise for negotiations with a health kicce -- i think that a somewhat wrong. i have watched the other representatives of congress on tv every day negotiating and debating and putting their facts together. the final decision between nancy pelosi and the head of the sun -- of the senate when they finally came out with exactly what the bill would be -- it was done behind closed doors. the putting together of the bills, people putting in their amendments, was actually done on cspan every day and i watched that. secondly, with respect to these people calling about taking away guns. there is nothing about taking away people's guns. if they go through a background check, they don't need to have a gun. the second ame
amendment make this a safer country? fox news poll ask if they believe that gun laws help stop acts like the newtown shooting? 22 percent said yes. tougher laws can help. 71 percent said no people will still find ways to get and use firearms. does the president's action hit the mark? emily miller joining us from washington. good morning, emily. >> good morning, tucker. >> tucker: is there any evidence that gun control in the united states, a country with a second amendment. you can't ban this tfps not helping. it doesn't change anything. that was banning certain cosmetic features which is what the president wants to do again. there is absolutely no evidence at all that gun laws decrease crime and the reason is simple. the bad guys are already disregarding the laws. they know there are laws against robbery and know there is laws against murder. ownership of a gun is not going to stop them from doing anything. >> tucker: to keep this in perspective from so-called assault rifles, there are about 310 million people in this country. 2011 there were 330 deaths from rifles, and that includes su
, this after president obama proposes the most sweeping changes to u.s. gun laws in almost two decades. his plan is drawing a lot of criticism, including from, including a number of executive orders like stronger background checks and more support to law enforcement agencies but the main part of mr. obama's plan requires congressional approval. it calls for renewing an assault weapons ban that went into effect in 1994. then expired a decade later. now the question is whether all of this will be implemented and if so, will it make a difference? paul gigot is the editorial page editor of "the wall street journal." the president has suggested that, you know, the american people are behind these proposals. the question is, is the congress? >> well i think that remains to be seen and i think the reality is this is an uphill fight for the president and not merely because of republican opposition in the house of representatives, which they control. also because of democratic potential opposition in the senate. of course harry reid, the majority leader, has long been a big supporter of the nra and
are here without their papers to somehow get right with the law. right now, i mean, if you commit an offense other than immigration, you can, you know, pay a penalty and move on with you life. not so with immigration. right now, for example, we have 2 million migrant farm workers about in the united states. 70% to 80% of them are here without their papers. we have 5,000 permanent residence visas for people without a college diploma. we have husbands and wives that are separated for half a decade. that's not acceptable. we need to reform the system for the economy and for american families. >> and what she told me is this is a real imperative. what's new, it also is now an imperative for republicans. the election results from last november made clear the republican party needs a message for latino, asian-americans and immigrant groups if they have any chance of recapturing the white house. >> scott, this is carla marinucci. what's your thoughts on this? we've seen paul ryan, marco rubio extend a hand to president obama so to speak and suggest they are ready to talk about immigratio
-bye, andy. the o'reilly factor is on tonight. >> health reform law becomes legs in america. >> lower cost for families and for businesses and for the federal government. >> not true, mr. president. the government accountability office says not only will obama care cost the government a lot of money the enormous federal spending will eventually collapse the entire u.s. economy. this could be our last warning. lou dobbs will analyze. >> this is the president, i think, who has drunk the kool-aid. he is feeling right now high on his own power. is that true? is president obama becoming so rigid that he is unable to governor? carl rove has some thoughts. >> did you feel about bad about it? >> no. even scarier. >> did you feel in any way that you were cheating? >> no. >> lance armstrong pretty much admitting he is a sociopath. is he really sorry for his doping and lying? gutfeld and mcguirk on that. >> bill: caution, you are to enter the no spin zone. the from south florida. the factor begins right now. >> hi, i'm bill o'reilly reporting tonight from south florida. thanks for watching us. are we
because you're in selling what my wife and i and brother and sister-in-law and my sister and brother-in-law are trying to do with our kids, instilling that had a service, making it second nature to but others first as chelsea's parents taught her. so my request to you today is to take advantage of the hundred + organizations in this tent and on the small around this city that are out there to see if there is one where their mission matches your passion and consider serving our veterans as a small way of repaying the service that they have given to us. as my father said, help us show with the strength of our -- helpless show that the strength of our example as an example of our strength. my pop and the president of the nited statses will do all they can to strengthen our nation. [cheers and applause] today, we can all and hand and do the same. and in doing so, we are working to make our great country worthy of our veterans service and their sacrifice. thank you and god bless our troops. [applause] >> hi. what's yournam name? ?ill you shake my nhand what are you doing? >> we are making cards.
majorities sensible and strengthening the current gun laws. what they support, 82% of gun owners, 72% of members actually support universal background checks. we are trying to keep guns and weapons out of the hands of dangerous people, criminals, and the seriously mentally ill. when you talk to people in west virginia, gun owners themselves want to be able to have guns in their homes. they also want to ensure that those guns do not fall into the hands of people who should not have them. the other constituency that is important is law enforcement. they are unanimous in their support for assault weapon ban for capacity magazines and closing loopholes. host: gun control could split obama, reid. they say backing restrictions could hurt the senate leader and other democrats. this story points out that for some democrats up for reelection, supporting the president will be treacherous terrain. they go on to talk about facing reelection battles in states where gun control is politically unpopular making potential votes on the proposals problematic. what might the strategy be at your organiza
.s. needs to be done with force not with words as it regards jungle law the rule of its survival. what? the country's belligerent stance is one more issue on the president's full foreign policy plate, and it's going to be a concern for john kerry if he's confirmed secretary of state as he's very likely to be, increasingly likely, as a matter of fact. he got a very warm welcome from both sides of the hearing at his confirmation hearings in the senate today. >> the friendship has endured i believe it is based in myture respect. some observers have attributed that respect to the fact that when we were much younger nicer and better looking men than we are now senator kerry and i spent some time at the navy's behest in a certain southeast asian country in less pleasant circumstances than we're accustomed to in the united states senate. >> john is the right choice. and i urge his speedy confirmation. >> it's john john mccain so nice. much better reception than clinton herds got yesterday during the testimony of the bengahzi attacks. but it wasn't all warm and fuzzy. senator rob johnson who w
, and are law abiding, and they are coming to have their blood pressure checked, i can see a situation where a see site rifpsychiatrist is worried whera aggressive, unstable, patient can become violent, they know if they are suicidal they have to report that, they don't need president obama telling them how to do it. neil: let's say that patient you were worried about, and you didn't ask if they have a gun, he goes on a shooting rampage, and they trace his previous visits, and they say oh, he visited the doctor, and he did not ask him or report it, and then they sue him. >> that is what is wrong with that, if i don't ask if you have a gun, and you shoot someone, years later, it will be traced to me, and i can be sued, i can be sued for not suggestioning that some federal agency or in this case the president is suggesting. neil: this is in in addition to the -- compel doctors to do more than saying how are you doing? this is an odd thing to bring up in a conversation, do you say, i'm compelled to ask you, if you have a gun license, right, that is stupid. >> right, i want to do the flip side f
why. martha: new reaction to president obama's sweeping plan to overhaul gun laws. the nra is calling this, quote, the fight of the century. that group's president will be with us in "america's newsroom." that is coming up. some republican lawmakers are gearing up for the defense of the second amendment. >> there are several of the executive orders that appear as if he is writing new law. that can not happen. we struck down once, the court struck clinton down for trying this and i'm afraid that president obama may have this king complex sort of developing. we're going to make sure that it doesn't happen. this is $100,000. we asked total strangers to watch it for us. thank you so much. i appreciate it. i'll be right back. they didn't take a dime. how much in fees does your bank take to watch your money? if your bank takes more money than a stranger, you need an ally. ally bank. your money needs an ally. my i feel so much younger.tly changed my life - my husband has his confidence back. and he can enjoy the laughter of our grandkids again. i can have fun with my friends again. feeling i
the federal government have a law regarding that but i think each individual state should enact a legislative negligence act that if you don't fulfill that responsibility of having a budget, you do not get paid and you get barred from running for future elective office. with regard to the debt ceiling, here we go again. the republican party, if it goes along with this deal in my opinion ought to change its name to the caveman party and boehner and mcconnell would be the cavemen in chief, because every time we come to this debt ceiling what do the republicans do? they give in. and every amount of money that this country spends is showing it's unsustainable. we've got to reform them and get our budget in order and we've got to get our spending under control. host: lori who is one of the 65 people on facebook who has commented on this this morning says that this makes the seventh debt ceiling plays the obama's term while the democratically-controlled senate hasn't passed a budget. it seems silly -- logical to me at but he'll -- by the way, it gives an advertisement to our plans for inauguration
capitol police our responsibility in conjunction with our law enforcement partners is to ensure the safety of those attending the inaugural ceremonies throughout the weekend. first and foremost, we want everyone to enjoy the democratic process and this historic day. with any event that occurs on the capitol complex, safety is our number one priority. that said, safety and security for guests, public, et cetera, is not carried out just by us, but in partnership with our law enforcement community, metropolitan police, united states secret service, park police and other entities as well as public safety entities. the partnership that we have established to create a pretty robust plan has been in the works for many months and while i cannot go into detail about those -- about the security plan, please know we have trained extensively to address any issues that may come up during the day. thank you. >> thank you, officer. i appreciate that. as someone that did communications before heading back to the campaign last year, the officer had the easiest job because he can say i'm not allowed to say
have this compliance with applicable laws, federal, state, local. i imagine that would mean that hud is focusing on how federal law is being followed. and that for you to focus would be more than what is happening with local compliance. is that how it would work? >> anything specific to hud, the governing agency, we would leave to them. but i say that sort of looking over not just laws, legal compliance, might be in hud's purview. we would take much more of a focus on the city's priorities. i do know - especially when we talk about policies % there are many city policies and priorities that are different from what hud wants. we would look at that and how it fits together. i say that because i think that there are things about rent collection, tenant eviction policies, housing replacement policies that are important to the city that maybe hud has a different point of view on. >> supervisor campos: supervisor cohen mentioned the issuing of grants, purchasing, contracting. i assume policies around those issues would be things included in your review. >> that is correct. part of the go
has studied the brady law, which is the most significant gun safety law we've passed in the last 20 years has said it has reduced gun violence dramatically. law enforcement is totally for the brady law. and the idea that felons or people who are mentally infirm or people who are spousal abusers should be allowed to buy guns, most everyone agrees on that, even -- >> but there's no overwhelming evidence of the assault weapons ban dramatically reduced this incident of violence, nor was there an uptick in this sort of violence once the law lapsed. >> during the 10 years that the assault weapons ban was in effect, the use of those weapons in crime went down a significant percent an. >> senator, is there any gun regulation, any restriction of gun rights, you could accept or vote for? >> sure. i think the fact that we have background checks with people buy firearms and we prevent felons and those with serious mental illness acquiring them, those make perfect sense. >> so a background check is something you could support? >> well, the background checks are in place when a licensed firearms

law that was passed in '94 and expired in 2004, is leading today's charge. she, along with other senators, even displaying an array of assault weapons that would be banned and they brought props. senator feinstein arguing why is she believes there's a need for this ban. >> since the last assault weapons ban expired in 2004, and incidentally, in the ten years it was in place, no one took it to court. more than 350 people have been killed with assault weapons. >> megyn: no one took it to court because the nra at the time felt the supreme court was not leaning their way on these types of issues. the looks different it the court back then and the court today, there's question, if the bill would pass, there's question whether it would pass in the democratically controlled senate and whether the nra would feel the same. and on far-reaching rules of this legislation and the hurdles that have be to be cleared before this thing can pass. we're also hearing new questions today about secretary of state hillary clinton's highly charged testimony yesterday about the deadly terror attack on ou

brothers and i grew up a long time ago, back in a time when certain places in our country had unfair laws that said it was right to keep black people separate because our skin was darker and our ancestors had been captured in far off africa and brought to america as slaves. ok. then we came to -- we come now to atlanta, georgia. the city in which we were growing up had those laws. because of those laws, my family rarely went to picture shows. in fact, to this very day, i don't recall ever seeing my father on a street car because of those laws and the indignity that went with them, daddy preferred keeping m.l., a.d., and me close to home where we would be protected. but we lived in a neighborhood in atlanta now called sweet arbor. and this is the street. you can see the cars. you haven't seen cars like that, have you? they don't have any like that now. ok. something like we used to call a t model ford and so tpot. ok. we lived there on the avenue. and on our side of the street, there were two-story frame houses, similar to the one we lived in. across the street crouched a line of one-story
in settlements in the west bank, settlements that are regarded as illegal under international law. they used to vote for his party and say nessun are to -- netanyahu has abandoned them. >> i do not think anyone ever had a thought that they wanted to say. we might have expected that was a reality thrust upon us, but i do not think anybody wanted it. >> i know that he will still be a leader. but i want to make sure that the coalition is a coalition that i believe in. >> benjamin netanyahu voted early today, confident he was unlikely to lose his job, but also knowing he might well have to govern a more right-wing coalition. throughout this campaign, benjamin netanyahu has portrayed himself as the only candidate with the strength and experience to tackle israel's many problems. rejecting criticism from home and overseas, he is taking israel down a dangerous confrontational path. mr. netanyahu has authorized even more building in the settlements. there has been no progress in the peace talks with palestinians. the prime minister could isolate israel even further. >> if they often form a governmen
, the house pass a budget, senate pass a budget, as required by law and on time. so as i've talked to them, i feel pretty good about the constitutionality of the 27th amendment and how it applies to this. i would, if i could, make a couple other comments. i do think it's interesting in the spirit of bipartisanship, as you've pointed out, this was a piece of legislation for the most part pretty much mirrors what was introduced in the 112th with -- by a democrat with several other democratic co-sponsors as well as republicans here. i sort of feel like this is an effort at a bipartisan -- bipartisanship. i know sandy had to leave. we were talking about the ratings agencies and what debate. reading the executive management report from the ratings agency that also pointed to the congress that one of the reasons -- huge reason for the downgrade, they didn't feel that the congress had the political will to address the spending crisis that we are in either. so that was also a big part of the downgrade of our credit rating. now i think, you know, we are trying to exercise the political will to address
they see is a rush to pass quick laws. >> some the quickest passed laws are not the best laws and sometimes, are not even legal. >> the vast majority of people who own guns in this country aren't committing crimes and they don't want guns in the hands of people who do commit crimes. certainly, the severely mentally ill. >> the governor's proposal goes before the state legislature where an intense debate is expected. governor o'malley was asked today about the question of putting armed guards or police officers into maryland's schools. and all that idea was not part of that proposal for school safety, it has received support in recent polls. govern o'malley says this is an idea he would be willing to discuss. >>> the edge on virginia. the senate panel advanced a law that would require all gun buyers to undergo a background check at gun shows. right now, there is a loophole. only federally lies edged dealers would have to perform background checks. >> i have four assault rifles right here. >> reporter: voices calling for a ban on assault weapons. if you carry an ak-47 on to the floor in richm

. president obama has formally unveiled his proposals to reform the nation's gun laws more than a month after the shooting massacre in newtown. on wednesday, obama called for reinstating the ban on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines, expanding background checks for gun buyers, improving the delivery of mental health services, and allowing schools to hire up to 1000 school resource officers and counselors. obama presented his plan alongside vice-president joe biden, who headed the white house task force appointed after newtown. >> in the months since 20 precious children and six brave adults were violently taken from us in sandy hook elementary, more than 900 of our fellow americans have reportedly died at the end of a gun. 900. in the past month. and every day we wait, that number will keep growing. so i am putting forward a specific set of proposals based on the work of joe's task force. and in the days ahead, i intend to use whatever with this office holds to make them a reality. >> the white house plan is expected to meet stiff resistance from house republicans and even
is not the most important gun law that congress can pass right now. >>> and plus, while notre dame has been focused on a fake tragedy they have been ignoring a real one. whoa ! looks like you're in a pickle. yeah. can you get me out of it ? just so happens i know a chap... book any flight and hotel together and get access to our free personal concierge service. any need, any question, we're on call 24/7. and one wedding, 2 kids, 43 bottles of olay total effects and many birthdays later, still looks amazing. thanks to the trusted performance of olay. >>> think of some of the wilder things you have heard republicans saying recently. default, socialism, legitimate rape. republicans now have an odd rationale for that behavior, president obama made them do it. that is next. and later tonight, a group of business leaders say they know how to save social security. and here is a hint to their plan. it doesn't involve them paying anymore. at 1:45, the aflac duck was brought in with multiple lacerations to the wing and a fractured beak. surgery was successful, but he will be in a cast until it is ful
in the days and weeks after the inauguration to sell their proposal for stiffer gun laws and gun safety package. it's a strategy they feel has been successful in the past. they used it during the fiscal cliff fight, the student loan debate and they feel it's a way to rally the american public on their side and to pressure congress to act. it has been successful in the past, will it be in this instance? of course, that is a big question mark. this is a very controversial issue. but the polls show that the president has the majority of america on his side. the wall street journal poll shows that americans favor stiffer gun laws so that is his plan moving forward. >> thanks to you, dave, before you leave, picking up on what kristin said there. the president's gun proposal here, there are a lot of folks who have surmised that the president has asked for things that politically he knows he will not be able to get, especially the assault weapon's ban, is that what the white house strategy is? >> they cannot say they are giving up on the assault weapon's ban, but i think they are looking and a
growing a criminal offense under current -- international law. while coca-cola was guaranteed the right to use it as a flavoring in their own product, indigenous peoples across the andes are told that the traditional practice of coca leaf chilling and drinking tea would no longer be tolerated by the international community, and it is important to point out that the u.s. was the architect of these treaties commensurately have support from other countries. today they have key allies in their effort to maintain the treaties such as russia, japan, sweden. really is a u.s. estimate. so coke go along with cannabis and opium became the main targets of the 1961 convention. this historical error, as i like to college, was basically justified by the 1950 report of the commission of inquiry on the coca leaf which is a totally racist document. it is totally, totally racist. has absolutely no scientific evidence. you can find it on the web now. you will be out raised as you read, it is still the basis for the international drug control conventions treatment of coca. subsequent to that in the 1990's
to be an honest review of possible changes in the law that would be based on hard data, not just the political agenda of one side. well, so much for that. as many of us feared, there will be no executive orders or proposed legislation that might rile the president's hollywood pals. none of the legislation proposed so far is really about comprehensive mental health care reform. it's all about firing up the same old plans from the left, to pass new laws that will limit the freedoms of citizens who haven't broken any laws. emotional rational has been, as the president said this week, if there's even one thing we can do to reduce this violence, if there's even one life that can be saved, then we've got an obligation to try it. >> well, we all want to save lives, don't we? so, here is something hopefully that the president can agree to. since he says he wants to save the lives of children, we can start by ending the national nightmare of the destruction of more than a milunborn children a year, who didn't die at the end of a madman's gun, but at the end of abortionists scalpel and scraper. it's bee

the country to oppose the white house effort to reform the nation's gun laws. at demonstrations in pennsylvania and ohio, gun owners pilloried calls for stricter gun control. >> no law put on law abiding citizens h crime. they're going to take my gun so i can get shot. >> my thoughts is, tell the leftwing liberal idiots in washington to leave our guns alone. we're not hurting anything. it is the criminals. deal with the criminals, not the law abiding citizens. >> the pro-gun rallies also coincided with a series of nationwide gun shows where at least five people were wounded when their firearms accidentally went off. in north carolina, three people were injured when a shotgun accidentally fired as its owner removed it from its case. another gun owner accidentally shot himself in indianapolis, while an ohio a gun show attendee was injured by stray bullet. president obama is set to publicly take the oath of office today at his second term inauguration in washington. obama gathered with his family sunday in the blue room of the white house to privately recite the 35-word oath read t
tasks, equal pay for equal work, i thought we got that done with that, you know, ledbetter law. you know, gay marriage which he was against in his first campaign and during three of the first four years in office. voting protections, you know, i think this was a veiled attack at voter i.d. laws. and immigration reform which he had a chance to do when he had complete control of the congress in 2009 and 2010 and didn't bother to do and gun control. are all of these things only going to pass with democrat votes in 2013 and 2014? no. he's got to get the kind of gun control legislation you're talking about or is the congress going to validate gay marriage? i don't think so. he couldn't get climate control when he had complete control of congress, do we now think it's going to be passed with republicans in control of the house? no. and as a result, i think this was completely political and not focused on the big challenge the country faces which is getting our economy going. >> sean: i like what our colleague charles krauthammer said it's an ode to big government and you pointed out in the lis
in the first three months of pregnancy. the 7-2 ruling will likely lead to drastic overhall of laws on abortion. >> michael: it was 40 years ago that they legalized abortion in this country. the harris poll taken at that time found 52% of americans supported the decision. a wall street journal nbc poll found that 54% of americans believe women should be able to have an abortion. despite the widespread public support many lawmakers are doing whatever they can to take away a woman's right to choose. coming away from washington, d.c. is kay shepherd with mother jones magazine, kate, thank you for coming inside "the war room." >> thanks for having me. >> michael: kate, we read so much about mississippi. mississippi used to have 14 abortion clinics. now it just has one. how in 2013 does something like that happen? >> well, you know, it's a cumulative effect. it's in the early 80s that it had 14, but now the state has put on restriction after restriction. they have rules that you can't have an abortion after 16 weeks you have to have permission if you're a minor. it forced clinics to close. now you h
after restrictive abortion law passed. thank you both for joining me. congresswoman speier, it's a big day. big anniversary. big strides have been made. let's put this graphic up again. five states only have one abortion clinic left. it's a protected right. what's going on in these states though? >> well, there's been a systemic effort by the anti-choice community to go into the states and get laws passed to restrict access to abortion. last year and the year before were the worst two years in terms of the more restrictions that were placed on abortion opportunities for women. 135 laws were passed in over 30 states restricting a woman's right to choose. >> now, diane, when we talk about mississippi, we see that a lot of states and governors are really leading the charge. let me show you how some of the governors around the country are talking about women's right to choose and bors rights. watch this. >> to be clear, my goal and the goal of many of those joining me here today is to make abortion at any stage a thing of the past. >> we're going to continue to try to work to end abortion

? you think that's good? >> that's the law in florida. we have 1020 life. if a crime is committed in possession of a life it's a mandatory 10 years, if you pull out the gun a mandatory 20 years. these criminals are in jail. >>steve: senator rubio will be kwroeupbg -- joining us. >>brian: a terror group is holding at least a dozen people hostage including seven americans. >> here's what the latest is. the algerian army is surrounding a gas facility where hostages are being held. the terrorists say that the attack and the kidnapping is in revenge for french intervention in the country of mali. overnight the algerian government has been in talks with both united states and france, and we understand that the algerian government is now talking to tribal leaders that apparently do have ties to the terrorists. here's how the thing went down. there was a bus carrying american, british, norwegian french and japanese workers. that bus was ambushed by two armed men and two people were killed. they took off to the gas field and the total number of hostages remains unclear but reports say it r

for this short-term extension is to just get congress to actually follow the law that congress wrote in 1974 which is to pass a budget by april 15. we're not saying what kind of budget they have to pass. just pass a budget. reason is the senate is going on four years now for not having passed a budget. we think this gives us the time we need in this nation to have a good thorough, vigorous and honest debate of what it takes to get our fiscal house in order and about how to budget. families budget. businesses budget. our federal government should budget. we actually have a law that says we should budget. all we're saying is follow that law and that's why the short- term extension before you today. i'll let the rest of it speak for itself. >> thank you very much. mr. levin. >> first, welcome, mr. chairman. >> thank you. i think this is the first -- >> i think this is the first time i have been before you. the first time any of us has been in the chair. >> thank you. i hope i'll do good enough and make you want to come back. >> i'll come back whether i want to or not. \[laughter] >> we still we

[laughter] [applause] they should name it for people they do not like.
